4:02 pm
your mind back to the end of august he was detained when he arrived and by the end . question for nine hours and had those documents seized from him sheet that was read in court saying that the intelligence indicated that miranda was likely to be involved in espionage activity and that had the potential to act against u.k. security interests big long green was that was going to be responding saying that they absolutely explicitly now equating terrorism and journalism and of course that is going to be causing huge concern this is part of going to bait here in the u.k. surrounding press freedom at the moment and causing a huge amount of concern just earlier this week we reported on the prime minister david cameron seeming to issue a threats towards newspapers saying that if they didn't show some restraint in publishing information that action would be taken although he said he didn't want to get. the detention in the first place of david miranda

4:09 pm
their leaders wouldn't elaborate on that the iraqi prime minister called al qaeda a scourge for iraq in the middle east the iraqi prime minister has arrived in washington in the month that turned out to be deadly deadly as the in the last five years for those who are following the news it's becoming such a repetitive phrase the deadliest on leaving iraq for this many years said we hear it all the time the fact is that following the u.s. invasion in two thousand and three terrorism has rocketed in iraq the sectarian war that broke out as a result of the invasion has created a great environment for terrorists the iraqi prime minister says it's getting worse because he says as a result of the so-called arab revolutions there is a power vacuum in the region which extremist forces take advantage of it specifically spoke about syria and the situation there of course even though iraq's nouri al maliki knows what the u.s. invasion has led to in this country he can't be too critical of washington because after all in a way it's thanks to the u.s. that he's now in power so let's take
